India

We fill gaps in India’s health system and provide medical care to people who would otherwise struggle to access it.

We have a number of long-standing projects in India, which we run in conjunction with the state authorities to address existing healthcare needs and emerging public health concerns.

We also run mobile clinics in remote areas of the country, where even preventable, treatable conditions such as malaria can assume life-threatening proportions.

Key Activities 

We provide medical and psychosocial care for people living with HIV and drug-resistant tuberculosis in and around Mumbai, a city of 22 million people, around 50,000 of whom have TB, and 4,000 are infected with drug-resistant strains of the disease. We also have a team providing specialised care for TB, HIV and hepatitis C in Manipur, and in 2017 we set up a dedicated hepatitis C clinic in Meerut city. Kala azar is also endemic and particularly prevalent in Bihar, where our focus is on addressing kala azar-HIV co-infection

In the capital, Delhi, we provide medical and psychological care to victims of domestic and sexual violence, and raise awareness about the importance of seeking timely medical and psychological care. We work with community-based organisations, police, government protection agencies and the health ministry to highlight the clinic’s services and create an efficient referral system. We also engage the community in discussions on domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse.

Since 2001 we have been offering counselling in Jammu and Kashmir, where years of conflict have taken a toll on people’s mental health. Our work includes raising awareness of the support available, reducing the stigma associated with mental health, and emphasising the importance of seeking assistance.
